The Barbary Plague: The Black Death in Victorian San Francisco - Chase, Marilyn

The "Australia" sailed into the port of San Francisco on the day after New Years, 1900. The steamer passed an inspection, but carried infected rats carrying bubonic plague. With stunning narrative immediacy, fortified by rich research, "The Barbary Plague" chronicles a city under siege during the end of the gilded age.
